Still not getting enough sleep

I know, it's weird for me not to be posting as much as I normally do. I'm still not getting enough sleep. Nathan has been sleeping worse, waking up every 1-2hrs every night for the last few weeks. I keep hoping it will get better, but it hasn't yet. I even tried giving him a bottle of formula before bed last night to see if he'd sleep longer since it takes longer to digest, but it didn't help. He sleeps right next to me (the crib and bed frames are right against each other with the side rail off so I can still roll over to feed him) so at least I don't have to get out of bed when he wakes up, but it's still exhausting because he won't go back to sleep unless I nurse him, he just fusses if I try to give him the binky. I'm hoping he's just having a growth spurt and that it will go back to normal soon. I also heard that it's common for them to have sleep disturbances right before they hit milestones, and he is close to rolling over, so that could be it. I just need some good sleep! I'm going to ask Hubby to sleep with him on the couch tonight so I can hopefully get at least a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. Or maybe I'll sleep on the couch and they can go up to bed. Either way, hopefully that will help.

When my babies were little they would sleep longer if they were lying beside my husband. I guess when they are next to mommy they just want to nurse all night!
